Congratulations to Team Volteoans! Yesterday we showed the finals of the CreatorCon Hackathon and announced that Team Volteoans won with their app Clinical Care Management (EMR). The hackathon team would like to thank everyone for participating in the weekend-long hackathon. We had over 220 people across 50 teams submit applications by the end of the weekend and had some really impressive and innovative apps submitted. Choosing the five category winners and the grand prize winner was very difficult for our judging teams.

CreatorCon 2020 Virtual Hackathon Streaming Doing a virtual hackathon means that more people across the world can participate, which we’re really excited about. The downside is that we’re not all in a room together. While teams will be collaborating internally with each other and we have the hackathon community forum, we wanted to do something else to create some community and camaraderie. We’re excited to announce that in addition to the special Hackathon version of Live Coding Happy Hour on Friday, May 1 at 4 PM EDT, we’re going to be doing two more Livestream Hackathon Shows over the weekend streaming live on YouTube and Twitch.

Working Remotely Tips and Tricks About As companies start to encourage (or mandate) their employees to work from home/remote (WFH) temporarily due to COVID-19 many of these employees will include ServiceNow developers. We’ve worked remotely for more than 13 years combined, from multiple houses, countries, planes, trains, and automobiles. Having experienced the WFH differences between 7 different companies, we wanted to give some tips from our experiences. Before you leave the office Make sure that you are set up to access your instance outside of your offices.

In the Developer Program, we have been soliciting platform feedback for some time now. Your feedback has gone into product planning around developer tools in the New York, Orlando and Paris releases. We absolutely want to continue to get your feedback but there is a more permanent and robust place for that now - the Idea Portal in Community. Not only can you submit your ideas there, but you can vote on other submissions and track the state through its lifecycle.
